I love my journals. This page has a very early ribbon embroidery added to it. It was a little experiment that was good enough at the time. I had it in a tiny hoop and out on display for years. My skills improved and I no longer wanted it to be on display. I also wasn't willing to part with it. Into my journal it goes and a few little bits and bobs were added
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
